Our Association of near three hundred members was incorporated on August 24th 1966. Its aims are:
To gather and bring together as many descendants as possible of the common ancestor René Hoûallet (Ouellet-te) in direct line and / or connected by marriage, to form a permanent organisation
To organize family gatherings or others in honour of the common ancestor and/or of his worthy descendants (centennials, tercentennials, of parishes, groups, golden wedding anniversaries etc…).
To maintain the commemorative monument, erected by donations at the open air Sanctuary of Notre-Dame-de Fatima, in "La Pocatière", and the adjacent lot.
To publish a bulletin bearing the name of "LE HOÛALLET",a periodical of the Association that will be sent free to all adherent members The bulletin will publish questions of genealogy, history and heritage that may be of interest to the members, students, and the general public. It will also serve to promote cultural life in our milieu
